Stop, in the name of the paw! Hilarious moment raccoon gives cops the runaround in Colorado store after being chased out of wall it got trapped in

This is the hilarious moment a raccoon gives cops the runaround at a Colorado store after it was chased out of a wall it got trapped in.

The critter was seen breaking into the Boulder distribution center after a truck from Louisville arrived with a delivery.

The pallets were being unloaded when workers noticed the raccoon crawl out and escape.

The raccoon was finally found stuck upside down between lumber along a wall after a 45-minute hunt.

One of the workers was attempting to slide the panel when the raccoon jumped out from its hiding spot.

The animal ran past Boulder Police Animal Protection Supervisor J. Whittle and led cops on the chase.

Police bodycam footage showed the officers running after the raccoon and a worker grabbing a kennel and setting it up on the floor before trapping it.

Whittle said they were able to track down the Louisville address where the truck picked up the pallets and made sure to send the raccoon back to its stomping grounds.

‘He had plenty of hiding spots and trees and dumpsters,’ Whittle said. ‘I hope he found his family and friends back in Louisville.’
